WWE Raw 5/3/2012 Preview
The road to Wrestlemania 28 rolls into Boston, Massachusetts. This week’s Monday Night Raw Supershow on 5/3/2012 is all set to be enthralling as we expect huge Wrestlemania build-up including appearances from The Rock and Shawn Michaels. Here is our detailed preview to this blockbuster show.
Teddy Long is in charge
As per the orders of WWE Board of Directors, former Smackdown General Manager Theodore Long will take over as the Raw General Manager from this week. With this being a Supershow, will there be a conflict of interest between him and John Laurinaitis? This intriguing power struggle between the two General Manager enters a new phase on Raw.
David Otunga vs The Great Khali
Teddy Long has announced a singles match between Laurinaitis’ sidekick David Otunga and The Great Khali to take place on Raw. David Otunga has hit a green patch recently with dominant victories over Ezekiel Jackson over the past couple of weeks. Will he continue his winning streak or will it turn out to be a ‘punjabi nightmare’ for him?
The Rock in Cena’s hometown
Wrestlemania 28 may be taking place in the Rock’s hometown of Miami, Florida, but this week’s Raw will be held in Massachusetts – the native of John Cena. What will be the crowd’s reaction towards the most electrifying man in all of entertainment? What will the Rock have to say after being outclassed by Cena last week? Will Cena be able to win over the people of Boston? All these billion dollar questions will be answered on Raw.
HBK to confront Triple H
A few weeks after a controversial statement by Triple H that he was better than his best buddy Shawn Michaels, Raw will witness an epic confrontation between two icons of wrestling, in mini-feud that has developed all of a sudden. The Undertaker was scheduled to appear on this Raw earlier, but his name has been removed from scheduled appearances list. So, whether he will or will not appear on the show is still a mystery. The question on everyone’s mind is whether this confrontation will lead to HBK’s involvement in the Wrestlemania 28 Hell in a Cell match between Triple H and Undertaker. What will be Shawn’s rebuttal to his best friend’s observation on his ability? Will there be physicality between these two?
CM Punk and Chris Jericho
Last week, Chris Jericho reigning supreme with a scathing attack from the back on the WWE champion CM Punk who will be Jericho’s attempt at Wrestlemania. CM Punk may retaliate for Jericho’s vicious attack. It will be interesting to see how they take forward their feud to the next level with just 3 weeks to got for the big event.
Zack Ryder returns
Earlier today, Zack Ryder tweeted that he will be on Raw tonight. Here is his exact tweet:
On the road to RyderMania…Boston for Raw #WWWYKI
— Zack Ryder (@ZackRyder) March 5, 2012
It seems like the Ryder is ready for action at Mania this year. But the question is, who is he going to feud with? We will get an answer pretty soon.
Kane’s path of destruction
Kane returned to Raw last week, and chokeslammed nearly 4 guys who were involved in the Tag-team championship match. Last week on Smackdown, he interfered in a Daniel Bryan vs Randy Orton match and chokeslammed Orton to make his intentions clear. Are we in for a Wrestlemania match between the viper and the big red monster? If so, we could come to know more about it on Raw.
Advertised locally is Chris Jericho and Kane vs. Cena and CM Punk. This will likely be the dark match of the night.
An action packed Raw Supershow awaits us tonight. Get ready for all the action on this week’s WWE Raw 5/3/2012.
